You’ll notice it took three attempts before we finally got set.
You’ll also notice how the long trade was broken into two portions. This was based on “fuel consumption” plus auction participants unwilling to take prices higher, at that specific moment in time, hence the initial profit take.
When conditions changed the re-entry was taken, to make the most of the “long liquid lunch” phenomenon as discussed in prep.
